THE T-SHIRTS STORY

Jeremy Strickland white tshirtJeremy Strickland black tshirt
The images above are of t-shirts produced by Jeremy Strickland. Michael Donohue posted the photo of the white shirt, which led to some discussion as to whether it was factually correct.

Jeremy Strickland: Well news for you all. I designed that t shirt and that is no shit. It is a fake but I wanted to come up with a bill board design t shirt and lets face it those who went to Frenchs including myself just loved the joint. I have also done another one with feed time and real fucking idiots with Rick feed times permission and help. And punk bands did play there before 1977 or 1979 as I remember a interview on jjj and pip hoyle from birdman talks about playing there in 74 when the band did there first few shows. So I hope that puts everyone’s mind at ease. Love you all jeremy

Rick Feedtime: howdy (old) crew…about jeremy stricklands stuff…he’s been a good friend for decades…said he was interested in keeping the memory of frenchs alive so he did some shirts…he took artistic licence with band names and thats been cleared up above…he did a feedtime/real fucking idiots one with my okay…he’s rock solid in trying to respect the traditions and to keep the memories alive…think thats it from me…have fun

A photo of the black feedtime shirt had in fact been posted earlier by Ashley Thomson. That led Ricky Onsman to mock up another version based on Jeremy’s design.

ricky_shirt And that’s where we are at the moment. We could produce more of Jeremy’s existing designs, or we could come up with some new designs. To do that, though, we need some idea of how much interest there is. If you have a general idea that you might like a French’s t-shirt or (eventually) a poster or (even more eventually) a compilation of audio tracks recorded at French’s, use the Sign Up button in the right sidebar to leave us your name and email and we”ll let you know what happens.
